I’ve been trying to be nice. I’ve been trying to ignore your rants like Sallie Mae phone calls. However, your push on being accepted is as annoying as your baby mother. Now don’t get me wrong, you have great points. But that’s it. You know what annoys me about you, Lupe, and others like you? You guys love to tell us the problem but no solution. We all know what the problem is. We diagnosed it a long time ago. Now the question is, what’s the solution?
Remember John Lewis The Fifth? He’s a dope Miami rapper/producer bringing back that old school flavor to modern Hip-Hop. He enjoyed his first feature on the site so much, that he sent over another video. This one is actually a collaboration with fellow artist Dino of the label Sponsored By Hard Work. It’s for a track that the duo created called “Sikka School (Sick Of School).” It runs slightly over two minutes and was produced by Slow Architect. The production is wicked. The suave foundation, groovy musical elements, and easy going vibe make for an undeniable combination. The hook is extra memorable. It’s utilized more towards the end and contains a lively delivery with fresh lyrics. The verses are fire. Dino bodies the track first then hands it off to John Lewis whose contribution is equally hot. Both artists exhibit charming flows, keen wordplay, and top of the line rhymes. It’s the best anti-school anthem any frustrated student could ask for. And former students will dig it too. Overall, this single is a beast. Peep the visuals after the break.
The Boombox Saintz are a highly respected collective within the Milwaukee music scene. They can be described as a Conscious Hip-Hop group with a variety of additional influences. They consider themselves the vigilantes of life and music. So in turn they take pride in standing up for: honor, justice, love, life, and power; especially in times where no one else will. They aim to provide guidance to the lost and support to those who are already fighting the good fight so to speak. Since readers have already gotten a feel for member Super Ego, thought it would be neat to bring a little light to the group too.
